Description

From the top of the approach ridge (see description in "Avoiding the Issue:" mountainproject.com/v/avoid…), head upward, trending left somewhat to meet the right side of the landing below the roofs on "Avoiding the Issue." Many variations are possible, ranging from 4th class to perhaps 5.8.

At the landing, climb the right wall below the roofs. The rock is dirty and a bit chossy, but the movement is fun. Follow the line of weakness angling slightly right around the roofs to a landing. See photo: mountainproject.com/v/11212… 5.9, 35m.

From here, scramble straight up to the upper roof/headwall on easy terrain (4th to low 5th).

The final pitch ascends the crack on the right of the upper roof/headwall but is currently unfinished. My wife went into labor before starting this pitch, leading to a hasty retreat. It would probably go at 5.9 or so.

Location

Start at the top of the approach ridge, right of "Avoiding the Issue" and left of "Pterodactyl."

Protection

Singles to #3, doubles in fingers to small hands.
